/ explanation: Yes. As the sequence of aminoacids in Mutation 1 is different from original strand, the protein formed is different. The protein can be abnormal.
In Mutation 2, protein fails to form as Initiation codon is missing.

• Silent mutation: Silent mutations are DNA mutations that do not result in a change to the aminoacidsequence of a protein. They may occur in a non-coding region (outside of a gene or within an intron), or they may occur within an exon in a manner that does not alter the final amino...
protein A protein molecule is a long chain of aminoacids linked by peptide bonds. The properties of a protein are determined by the order, or sequence, of aminoacids in its molecule, and by the three-dimensional structure of the molecular chain. The chain folds and twists, often forming a spiral...
• A mutation in a gene in the fruit fly Drosophila was found to affect eye color. The protein affected was found to be completely normal in its molecular weight and aminoacidsequence, although much less of the protein is made in mutant flies. The most likely reason for the change...
Tertiary structure When a protein has two or more polypeptide chains, it also has quaternary structure. a. Primary structure Primary structure = Unique sequence of aminoacids in a protein. • Determined by genes • Slight change can affect a protein’s conformation and function (e.g., sickle-cell...
contained in the primary aminoacidsequence of cellular proteins is enough to guide a protein into its three-dimensional structure, to determine its specificity for interaction with other molecules, to determine its ability to function as an enzyme, and to set its stability and lifetime.

* Primary structure, such as the sequence of aminoacids held together by covalent peptide bonds, is not disrupted by denaturation.
